UFO Wednesday

This week I’m working on grand-nephew Colton’s Minkee quilt:

It is just big squares of green and white fabric, and it’s also backed with Minkee.  I think I will quilt it with big stars.  Colton and his family live in Arizona, so I’m making this with no batting.  I found a green and white strip cotton for the binding.  It will just be cuddly and yummy, and hopefully not too heavy.

I also did some hand piecing on my Grandfather’s Rock Garden quilt.  The pathway between the flowers is kind of a lavender-gray color, and a favorite memory is my grandfather’s rock garden with his roses and tiger lilies.  I have 16 flowers done.

I’ve been working on my sewing room for what seems like FOR…EV….ER….  I have a walk-in closet, and I’ve boxed up sewing projects into stackable containers and redone one end of the closet.  I’ve also labeled everything (still working on the other end of the closet that will have fabric and other supplies.)  I always enjoy seeing other people’s sewing space, so I’m sharing mine with you, a little bit at a time.

Yesterday I redid my “Wall of Cones” (thread) so it looks more orderly.  (FYI:  I didn’t have enough 4″ pegboard hangers, and the local big-box hardware store only had assorted packs of the pegboard hanger stuff.  Amazon to the rescue!  $20 for 100.)

It looks so much better having everything hang on the same size/style wire hanger thingy.

I have my finished UFOs a couple of different places.  You can find (almost) all of my UFOs listed under the “UFO Parade” tab at the top of this blog page.  I also have a list of finishes in my right-hand column, towards the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I’m linking to Judy Laquidara’s Patchwork Times, as Judy is hosting the UFO Parade – 2013.  Stop over and visit Judy!  She always has something fun going on.

  1. We all know our scraps multiply in the dark but I’m beginning to think UFO’s do the same thing. I have closet envy ~ no such thing in my space. Your minkee looks so very cozy and your GRG is going to be beautiful!

  2. I love seeing sewing spaces too so thank you for sharing yours! Quilting is certainly a storage intensive hobby. Your plans for the minkee quilt sound great and I love your Grandfather’s Rock Garden~
